Course Overview

The course introduces students to ArcGIS Pro mapping software, a stand-alone Geographic Information System (GIS) application from ESRI. With GIS, the student can explore, visualize, and analyze data; create 2D maps and 3D scenes with several layers of data to visualize multiple data sets at once; and share work to an online portal. GIS analytics tools are used in many disciplines and fields of practice including public health, history, sociology, political science, business, biology, international development, and information technology. In the end of the course, students will have the opportunity to take additional training on GIS applications in their field of interest.  DAS 532 is recommended but not required.
